Psalm 63:1

David wrote this psalm while in the wilderness. The wilderness was a barren, desolate place where he was deprived of the comforts of home and exposed to bad weather and hostile enemies.

These things were in and of themselves enough to make the wilderness a very troubling and trying experience. David found it to be even more so for another reason. While in the wilderness he was away from the sanctuary of the Lord.

The question is not whether we, as God’s people, will have to go through wilderness experiences, but rather how to face them. It is at this point that David’s psalm offers tremendous help.

Matthew 28:18-20

18 And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. 19 Go therefore[a] and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,20 teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen.

 

The sense of loneliness can be deceptive when in the midst of a storm.

"Where is the Lord?" and "Why does He seem so far away?" are everyday concerns and outspoken statements. The belief that He, the Lord, is with you at all times is most important in your walk and lifestyle as a Christian.

Text: Acts 2:1-4; Acts 2:5-6; Acts 2:38-39

This great Day of Pentecost celebrated 50 days after Passover. This was and still is an integral part of the promise that Jesus gave to fill His Church with power and anointing to “Go” (Matthew 28:18-20) in the harvest fields throughout the known world.

Since that promise, there have been many souls saved and baptized with fire which John the Baptist stated would happen!

As this promise was manifested in the Upper Room where 120 people waited for the promise there was a noticeable character that was formed in the all of them. They received “SPIRITUAL DNA” from the Lord our God.

Luke 19:41

What has become of the weeping, the cry of the heart for the lost? Has the Church drawn a cold heart and a blind eye or maybe a blurred eye, to what is going on in this world?

Our nation, quit praying, and now seems to be walking from church to find something more pure and relative. Really, what has become of the sounds of repentance and the cry for lost souls in our nation?

Acts 2:1-4

When we are in true community we will show the world that there is someone who can change there existing circumstances. Someone who is purposeful and meaningful to their soul. A change that will last for eternity, not just for a moment.That someone is Jesus! 

Community is not just a word on a sign or a crowd that goes to community meeting! Community is Christianity in its purest form with Jesus at its center!

Text: Luke 18:9-14

What keeps you or anyone, for that matter, at a distance from Jesus and His mercy? 

The tax collector stood at a distance and he prayer with humility and honesty.

Come close to God and He will come close to you James 4:8

Hebrews 12:1-3; Psalm 78:4;4:6-7

This text begins with a reference to the great chapter of “Faith”, Hebrews 11. Those who had lived through so much to continue forward in God’s Kingdom. Forsaking so much that they would love to have to accept what was better and that was God’s direction and His Truth.

 

Not changing the plan God had made to fit their own plans nor building off their own rules and cloaking them as though they were Gods. These great people of “Faith” believed God and His commands to gain what they could not yet see!

 

Sin Defined: The Bible describes sin as the breaking, or transgression, of God's law (1 John 3:4). It is also defined as disobedience or rebellion against God (Deuteronomy 9:7), as well as independence from God. The original translation means "to miss the mark" of God's holy standard of righteousness.

Text: Matthew 20:25-28

Three areas that will be addressed:

A. Love of God
B. Character of God’s Love in us
C. Serving others with that character of God’s Love

POINT: They wanted Him to be their king but He came to be their servant

POINT: Jesus served mankind in such a way that He was crucified for it. He came to serve not to be served!

As the Church we need to always know God’s love and how it is designed for our life. We must have the character of God’s love in us. Having that love active in us at all times. The act of serving others is as natural as breathing! These three areas of our relationship with God and also with others are pertinent to our reaching this world with the Gospel of Christ.

There are gifts and promises that God has given each individual Christian (or child of God) that often times have become dormant because of a lack of practice or use. Put aside for the reason that it does not seem important anymore! Shelved because it did not seem possible to have such a gift or promise! Robbed by the enemy of your soul because he was threatened by what you had received!

You can stir up the gift through prayer, through expectation, through faith, through hope and through practicing what has been given you! To many people today in the church world are stagnant and have become still pools of which have know vitality! They reason out that one day I will get back into what I should have done all these years or months but now I will just sit and go unnoticed with a “closed” sign on their countenance. Ministry is difficult and it entails sufferings but oh, the joy of it all! Rise up, stir it up, and begin again!

Text: Mark 3:13-17; Romans 6:3-5

Revealed through an outward act that reveals inward change. The statement of action reveals the source of our salvation through Christ Jesus. One that is baptized is stating: 'I am dying to self inside that I may make a statement of life on the outside.'

What this signifies is that you believe in your salvation so deeply and truly that you realize the act of baptism is testifying of your death and now resurrection to life through Christ! Grace has been applied to your life so you may live that life assured of your salvation and your future hope in Christ Jesus. Your obedience is revealed in such a way that you identify with the glory of Jesus and His Resurrection and the gift that you have: Eternal Salvation!
